.

Vandag vier ek jou!.
Jou onuitputbare lewenslus en jou kinderlike opgewondenheid!
Ek vier jou soeke na die fynskrif van die Vader se wil en opdrag vir jou lewe.
Ek vier die gehoorsaamheid wat jy het in die geheim, die integriteit om reg te doen, selfs wanneer net Sy oë sien.
Ek vier jou drome, brose afhanklikheid en blinde vertroue in Sy woord en beloftes!
Ek vier jou lag, speel en jou kyk met n deurdrenkte waardering na die wereld om jou.
Ek vier jou hart, só groot, omdat dit gevul is met Sy liefde. Só sag, omdat dit met daardie selfde liefde, lief het. Só sterk, omdat dit die onblusbare liefde wat alles hoop, glo, verdra en bedek, verstaan en van oorloop!.
Ek vier al die ontelbare oomblike wat die Here se haarfyn beplanning en seën reflekteer, en loop die pad met ’n huppel-in-my-stap-afwagting saam met jou...
Ek vier jou my man! Al 32 jaar van jou, and counting... • HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUNNYBUNNYBIRTHDAYBOO •.
.
@Adriaanbergh ... En ja, ek het jou dit sopas hier genoem🤩🤣💓❤️.

  • So before I continue my last post...(my series of 30th birthday epiphanies) ... Let me stop here, because today is one incredibly special day...
.
”There's a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother's story, because hers is where yours begin.” - Mitch Albom.
.
Today I celebrate the birth of a generation of fearless women. Daughters with character, strength and tenacity. I celebrate the promise of God to give grace - yes, one that makes perfect out of ”work in progress”, whole out of broken, and unmistakably beautiful through His abundance of love! I celebrate a rock with a mushy and squishy heart full of love, wisdom, grace and a fierce love for God and her family!
.
Happy birthday mam! @wandabam .Ek, @melissaswart_ , peshie, pavie, turs, ads en al ons kids (in the planning/making) dra die vrug en seën van n ma wat by die Here se voete sit!.
.
Mag die Here n paleis op n berg met ample packing place vir ma bou, vir al die edelstene krone en perels, en mag Sy volle en ryke seën uit die Hemel oor mamma reën en elke saadjie in mam se lewe, gesondheid, huwelik, finansies en roeping laat op kom! I love you!!!!

  • Here it is!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My heart is filled with gratitude entering my 30’s - and it hasn’t been the least bit daunting! I had expected something a little more dramatic, like sudden unwarranted outbursts in hopeless cries or and an urge to plough my face into a pot of nutella...but no...it has been the best celebration and my heart is grateful!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I gave a few things some thought and 
reckon with this new found wisdom,(😂🤣😜which I might be entertained by come ’40s) I should share a few of these epiphanies and thoughts: (Shared across two posts because I can’t stop typing😂🤣😂) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀. 1. Do whatever you can to avoid judging other women. You don't know what kind of mother you will be, or what kind of daughter you will be to an aging parent, or a friend to someone who needs it, until you are. Be accepting to your fellow women who are all just trying to do their best.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. The person you choose to spend your life with is the most important career decision you will make. Your life will be significantly harder if you don't have someone who believes in your calling as much as you do. (thanking God for @adriaanbergh Adriaan, the biggest blessing in my life! Always reminding me of Gods call on my life and telling me that I look even prettier without makeup😊️)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Stop assuming the worst will happen.  Don’t remove hope from your everyday life, from the smallest to the biggest of things! You are blessed and favored and when things do get tough, man, will you find out just how much gumption you have!.
.
 4. Hold tight to your real family and real friends. You only need a hand full! For champagne filled lunches without judgement, heartfelt convos on the couch, ”get-your-sorry-self-together” pep talks and laugh till you pee a little moments. (I have a big hand full and you’ll see my next post to see just how grateful I am for them...)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Don't judge older women for spending money on eye cream, botox, and other expensive facial products. When you see your first under eye wrinkle... you'll get it. 😉😂.

  • I may be a girly girl in many aspects, but when it comes to something that gets my adrenalin pumping, I get invigorated by things that confronts my fears, challenge brut strength, sheer speed and suddenly,  that girl is strapped in the backseat and Bam takes over.
.
With the Launch of the new Jaguar I-Pace, I’ve learned that not all speed, strength & adrenalin is packaged in something that roars and boasts with a threatening appearance... In many ways, its shown me that the girly girl can junp behind the wheel and be just as badass as the next.
.
Full electric, incomparable power, and speed, this Jaguar I-Pace challenges the way you think and dares you to judge it by its sleek appearance and sound... .
In many ways, I feel a kinship with the new I-Pace...Electric is the new brut strength, Sleek design, the new sexy, and quiet performance @ 0-100 in 4.8sec, the new roar...
.
.
Take a sneak peek of my day with @jaguarmenlyn at the launch of he new I-Pace at the new Jaguar experience center in Lonehill. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#JaguariPace How alive are you?

  • ”There is no copy & paste kind of face - 
Every ”beauty” is different & should be embraced.
You should learn to love and work with what you have & celebrate just that!” - @SHEnation_

After being in this industry for quite some time, and being exposed to the best of the best in the industry - and more recently - Peter Phillips - the Mastermind Creative and Image Director of Christian Dior Makeup - I've learnt that being able to work with what you have, and celebrating your unique beauty, is a major confidence booster, and one every woman should have.

Feeling beautiful when a make up artist has touched your face, or gave you the perfect smokey eye is amazing, but, leaving that feeling up to the once in a blue moon occasion when you do find yourself under the hand of a professional, is doing yourself the greatest injustice.
